Ebook Temperature Quilts, Embroideries and Other Slow Craft Projects
It is a digital file which you download to read on your device (and print if you like). The ebook is designed to work best in a vertical format.
In 2020 I made a steps tracking quilt. It was a nice companion through the turmoil of that year. In 2021 and 2022 I worked on embroideries which tracked the temperatures where I live. I have really come to appreciate how long-term projects like these can be a comfort and a daily reminder to make something, even if it is a small something.
After doing a few of this type of project, as well as other long-term projects, I have learned a lot about what works and also some things that I would do differently.
This ebook is a resource I wish I had before I started these projects because there are a lot of things to consider!
The 62 page ebook contains tips, advice and resources:
- How to work out a temperature scale (I also include the one I use)
- Deciding on the size of the project
- Ideas for things to track
- How to keep track of your information
- Tips on preparing for a large project
- How to estimate the amount of materials you will need
- Design/layout of your project
- DMC thread colour range for a temperature project
- Kona cotton colour range for a temperature project
- Quilt block suggestions
- Interviews with others about their projects, including Jo Avery and Karen Lewis.
- Templates and tracking spreadsheets
